KAYs Club hosts fund raiser, food drive

HOISINGTON — Earlier this month, the Hoisington High School KAY Club held a "Can a Teacher Day." Each class brought canned goods to fill in a space the size of a classroom door. If the class brought in enough canned goods to completely fill the area, they were allowed to "can" the teacher and skip their class for the day. Each class selected a teacher who agreed to the terms. The following classes chose these teachers: senior class, Mike Richter; junior class, Carrie Fiest; sophomore class, Bruce Cooper; and the freshman class, London Reif.

Two classes were able to complete the goal, the seniors and the juniors. These students were allowed to go to the gym and participate in other activities during that class period.

The drive was a success as the KAYs were able to donate a van load of canned goods to the food pantry.

"The KAYs would like to thank the teachers and HHS Principal Meg Wilson for letting us participate in this fun and worthwhile activity," said Susan Lowry, KAY sponsor.


The HHS KAY Club was invited by the Quivira Heights KAY club to participate in a fund raising activity at the basketball game last Friday. Members from both clubs held a Pop-A-Shot Contest at the half-time of the boys varsity game.

Individuals could pay a dollar to enter the contest. Those under 5th grade were allowed to shoot a free-throw and those 5th grade and older were allowed to shoot a three-point shot. If the person made their shot, they received a two liter bottle of pop.

" There was a good turn-out for the contest, and several bottles of pop were given away," said Lowry. "The money will be used for the Soles for Soul charity that the Quivira club is involved with."

She added, "It is good to see the kids come together in a non-competitive way to accomplish a common goal. We are glad that the Quivira club invited us to participate. We had fun and would like to try that contest at one of our games."
